Atlanta, GA — March 2, 2010 — SCI Companies today announced that it has been awarded the silver partner status with the CMAA Corporate Advantage Program. The mission of the program is to evaluate and recommend solutions to club management professionals which enhance their effectiveness, and identify those companies that are most dedicated to serving the club management industry in the spirit of a true partnership.
SCI Companies has successfully served the club management industry for over 25 years, improving the operations of golf courses, country clubs and various other club industry organizations by delivering the most comprehensive Human Resources (HR) technologies, consulting and services available via an outsourcing model.
The weakened economic climate since mid 2008 has created enormous operating concerns for the club industry. Membership retention challenges have added pressure to already tight financial budgets. Maintaining membership satisfaction is more difficult due to shifting demographics. Reducing normal operating workloads and costs to invest greater time, money and attention on club staff education and training has become of paramount importance to club leadership as they strive to deliver to membership the optimum social and recreational experience.
David Volpi, Director of Strategic Initiatives for SCI Companies explains, “The demands on club management professionals to insure their clubs perform at peak levels are greater today than I can remember. For the club industry, performance is most often assessed in two categories — financial strength and membership satisfaction. Our broad range of HR services that help manage a club’s employee benefits, workers’ compensation and payroll functions cut administrative workloads and the associated costs. With the current economic pressure on the club industry to do more with less, outsourcing certain business functions that are not core to membership value and satisfaction is a wise way to trim costs and attain greater profitability. Our human capital development services include the CMAA Club Learning Institute (CLI).”
Volpi also states, “Whether club management wants to begin outsourcing with just a turnkey technology solution, a comprehensive HR Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) solution or select administrative or human capital development service, SCI Companies is the provider to consider. We have all outsourcing models implemented and working successfully. “
In conclusion, Volpi affirms, “We are pleased the CMAA Corporate Advantage Program has recognized SCI Companies as a leader in the club management industry, and we look forward to working with the local club management professionals to help shorten their long days while enhancing their club’s service and satisfaction levels to membership.”
